Sandiganbayan upholds dismissal of Marcos case
MANILA, Philippines — The Sandiganbayan second division has upheld its initial decision to dismiss a P102-billion forfeiture case filed 32 years ago against the Marcoses due to the missing originals of key documentary evidence.
In a Feb.13 eight-page resolution, the antigraft court dismissed for lack of merit the motion for reconsideration filed by the Presidential Commission on Good Government and the Office of the Solicitor General.
It also said the government failed to present any new argument in its motion.
